I to took the plunge and got the SC 07, when I saw some possible photos of the newer possible 08 model, not too long ago. Like the suicide door, and over all appearance of the SC model, not to mention for me the root beer color.
The newer model, if that is what it may look like, seems a bit too big, probably lousy gas mileage, and heavier as well. Do like the NAV system, but had that on my 06 civic and hardly used it.
Of course, that may not be the new 08 model, and if its not and its better looking than the 07, I'm going to smack someone.... My self

The Element badly needs a diesel to fix its biggest weakness...mpg.
A diesel Element with lots of torque that got 35mpg. Sounds good to me.

I would also love Honda to do a limited edition 'Woody'. I think they could sell them, the customer base interested in Elements are not your average customer, they are looking for something with character.
Totally agree on the diesel, perhaps in '09. I have heard that there will be an Accord diesel at that time.

One of the main selling points for me with my 2006 Element was the suicide doors and the versatility with my music equipment, bicycles, day job equipment. If it looks and is wqupped like every other mid-size SUV, I'll either keep the one I have or get the SC.
Does Honda have a clue about the Elements niche market?

It would be nice if there was someway to fit a fifth passenger......I'm comtemplating buying an 07 and when we travel with all three kids we'll still be forced to take the wife's CRV...
#15 of 39 In-Dash GPS in Element
Mar 28, 2007 (9:37 am)
Does anybody know if I were to pull an in-dash GPS out of another Honda, like the Accord or CR-V, if it would work in the Element. I keep getting "No" from dealers and Honda Corporate, but nobody can tell me why it wouldn't work. I'm inclined to believe that I'm being lied to by the dealer and by corporate because they don't offer it, I don't care if they offer it, I'm more than happy to buy a honda GPS unit on ebay or a Honda Parts specialty store, but I don't want to make the investment if it's not going to work. I prefer not to get an aftermarket In-Dash system because there is no garauntee that the steering controls will work. Does anybody know if it can be done?

Do you mean the 08 Element? If not, you're more likely to get responses in our Honda Element group, where owners of current models may be able to help you.

Well for that matter does anybody know if the '08 Element will come with an In-Dash Nav System? Does anybody know anything about the '08 or is this room just rumors?

The Element is not on the redesign list, so I doubt there will be any major changes.

Both Motor Trend and Intellichoice still show a redesign for 2008. If not, when does Edmunds believe the redesign will come?
